Did German families live in your neighborhood? Did you join any German associations or clubs?

German families did live in our neighborhood. We live close to the Alexander von Humboldt Schule in Baie D’Urfe. Many families whose children attend the school have moved closer to it. There are many German speaking families from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland here. As a new immigrant I did have some associations with German churches and other groups, but as you become more acculturated in Canada you tend to join other non-German groups. I still have strong ties to the German school because my children go there.
